Complete Care Guide for Staghorn Fern

The Staghorn Fern (Platycerium bifurcatum) is a unique and fascinating plant that can thrive both indoors and outdoors. Follow this comprehensive care guide to ensure your Staghorn Fern remains healthy and becomes a striking focal point in your living space:

Light:

  • Filtered Light: Place your Staghorn Fern in bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate some direct sunlight, it usually thrives in dappled or filtered sunlight.

Water:

  • Soak and Dry: Water your Staghorn Fern thoroughly when the mounting medium feels dry to the touch. Provide a deep soak, allowing water to penetrate the roots. Allow excess water to drain.

Humidity:

  • High Humidity: Staghorn Ferns prefer high humidity. Maintain humidity by misting the plant regularly or placing a tray of water near the plant.

Temperature:

  • Warm Temperatures: Keep the Staghorn Fern in temperatures between 60-80°F (15-27°C). Protect it from drafts, as it can be sensitive to sudden temperature changes.

Mounting:

  • Mounted Display: Staghorn Ferns are often mounted on boards or plaques with a mixture of sphagnum moss and potting soil. Ensure the mounting structure is secure and allows for good air circulation.

Fertilization:

  • Mild Fertilization: Feed your Staghorn Fern with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in fall and winter.

Pruning:

  • Minimal Pruning: Trim away any brown or damaged fronds using clean scissors or pruning shears. Prune with care to maintain the plant’s distinctive shape.

Division:

  • Occasional Division: Staghorn Ferns can be divided when they outgrow their mounting structure. Carefully remove the fern, divide the clumps, and remount as needed.

Potting and Repotting:

  • Infrequent Repotting: Staghorn Ferns are typically mounted and don’t require regular repotting. Repot when the mounting structure starts to degrade or if the plant outgrows its space.

Pests:

  • Monitor for Pests: Keep an eye out for pests like scale and mealybugs. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Challenges:

  • Leaf Browning: Browning may occur due to underwatering or exposure to direct sunlight. Adjust the watering routine and relocate the plant if needed.

By following these care instructions, you’ll create an optimal environment for your Staghorn Fern to thrive and display its distinctive, antler-like fronds in a captivating manner.
